Here is brick that actually is nice. Generally, I have to say, I'm anti red brick. But in this house, it'salright.
Another white brick fireplace.
Can you tell I'm getting close to painting it white?? Unless someone interferes with my evil plans, I will soon attack the brick with some primer! Okay, maybe not soon, since I don't actually have time to paint the fireplace anyhow.

This is a picture of when the window in the bedroom was replaced. It looks so cool with now window. You can see the neighbor's nice pond in this picture, too.
Isin't this a nice entryway garden?
This picture is from Rafe's room. I love this wall decal thing I found on Etsy. You can pick the colors for the leaves and fruit. It's cheap and I think is so much fun.
Bedroom picture. See, I can't even be bothered to move the remotes for a picture. Too much work! ha! Anyways, I liked these lamps but Matt said that they were like alien's had landed next to the bed..... I don't know what he's talking about, but, whatever. We considered hanging some wall sconces but he made a big drama show about how impossible it would be to turn off the light while laying down on your back in the bed. For god's sake, man! the day you can't even sit up to turn off your bedside table light is a sad, sad day indeed.
At any rate, the bedroom looks diff now. Bed is in front of window and bedding is different. We badly need curtains as the red sheet held up with tacks (tacs?) is getting annoying.

I am thinking about this bed for my bedroom. It comes in lots of different colors.
I'm an expert scanner, right? heh heh
Love this room!

A picture showing the wobbley shingles. The roof has to be replaced this month! Today the water was pouring down the wall in Stella's room!
This red room picture is mostly for Tina! I stole the chair from Stella's room for this room. It's still not quite right, but better than having the b and w couch in there? That was too big. I want to make this room so much lighter. The red is too strong. I wonder if I could go white and still ahve the curtains and wallpaper (not seen in this photo) still look good?
Again, sort of for Tina...I got the curtains up on the pantry! I've had these curtains for a while and so glad I found a use for them. Got them off of ebay a million years ago. Had to hem and iron them. They were the PERFECT width for the pantry! YAY!!!

This is one of 2 pictures of the bed Stella made for Rafe. (Aunt Margie - recognize that blanket??)
Recently, my good friend Tina came to visit from Seattle. Stella loved playing with Tina, and I loved getting to spend time with her. I guess we have been friends for about 10 years, now?
Look, quick! Stella is interacting with her brother!

Ah! It's just so pale! I love it. You can see why I dislike my own dark fireplace. I love light colors.
This dining room or kitchen area is, I guess, totally "girlie." My husband recently pointed out to me that I have decorated the house in a very feminine style. This is a topic I would like to discuss with others: how to create a masculine/feminine balance in your home if you, um, totally love very feminine looks! Honestly, I'm not sure what a "masculine" style would look like. I just know what I like.

Thanks to anyone out there who would like to discuss home life with me!
